She's a local girl with local scars

L.A. Song (live) :: Beth Hart

5 Things this song reminds me of:

1) My neverending love/hate relationship with Los Angeles.

2) A certain dive bar and the people that frequent it, the way it feels inside, the atmosphere and the conversations, the expectations and the desperation, and that "I want to get the hell out of here" emotional response I've had within it, on occasion.

3) That I wish I'd continued playing piano.

4) Long cross-country drives with bags in the back and naive hopes that this time, this place, this change will make all the difference.

5) The book God-Shaped Hole, and how Trixie and Jacob felt about LA, and how much I understood it.
